Wearing of Face Coverings in GP Surgeries after 19th July 2021 Posted on 15 Jul 2021

We have a duty of care for our patients and our staff. Infection Prevention and Control (IPC) guidance regarding the transmission of COVID has not changed:

“use of facemasks/ coverings by all outpatients (if tolerated) and visitors when entering a hospital, GP/dental surgery or other care settings”

“Where possible and clinically appropriate remote consultations rather than face-to-face should be offered to patients/individuals.”

We are also asking all patients and visitors to the surgery to keep social distancing (when not in consultation).
